Bettie van Haaster

Bettie van Haaster (1957) works on a small scale. She uses multiple layers of thick oil paint that she applies wet-on-wet. In a limited palette she creates a painting with multiple structured layers and a tactile rhythmic surface. She investigates the image that evolves on the canvas, playing with reality and the imaginary, creating a world for the viewer to interpret, the titles merely giving suggestions. Over long periods of time she uses the same palette, creating a timeline of paintings that go from one to the next, like a story that evolves. During this process each discovery is taken into the next work.The works most resemble landscapes, fields, perhaps seen from above. Though small in size, the works take over the space and viewer in a mental and physical way.
